Parclan is on a distinguished road
I was going through this exact same drill, and did it extensively for a year. After test sailing the J boats mentioned, all of them, plus the Bene 36.7, plus a handful of others, we bought a C&C 110. Local PHRF here is competitive. My boat is now for sale due only to a change in family dynamics. You can see it currently on Yachtworld (Texas boat). Make me a reasonable offer and I'll pay to truck it up there. It is a great, great boat, and I have not regretted the decision one bit. Rock solid, fast, easy to handle. I have spent 4 days on it with 4 kids, and we were just fine. Also raced off-shore (coastal) and day sailed in the bay. PM me if you want details or more thoughts. One final comment about a J105 - I almost bought one; came very close. But I just couldn't get over spending that kind of money and not being able to even stand up in it.
